This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Uinta's Piggy Back Session Peach IPA.
Although certainly it was not my intention when I stopped in a beer store in Georgia's Golden Isles, it was fortuitous/hashgacha pratis to find a new peach beer when vacationing in the Peach State.
Although the good folks at BA classify this beer as an American IPA, I would beg to differ. When you flavor a beer with peaches it cannot be a pure IPA. Similarly, when the beer is a "session" it also does not fit neatly within the traditional American IPA category.
Since this is a session beer, it falls a little low on the abv spectrum as the Uinta website indicates that it is 4.0% abv. Speaking of the website, it also indicates that the beer is only available for purchase in Utah, but I found this on St. Simons Island in Georgia.
The beer has a mellow peach flavor and does not overpower the palate. Having said that, the hops are practically non existent and I almost felt like I was trying a saison. Don't get me wrong, it was positive that the beer was not cloyingly sweet and that there was no clash between the peach and the hops, I just wished that there would be a little more depth to the brew.
